    New McLaren F1 livery?

    It is stated that cellular phone provider Vodafone has signed a contract with Team Mclaren Mercedes, and that the Mclaren will receive a new livery to suit the new sponser's logo. Has anyone seen a picture of this new livery.

    Yes the Vodafone deal will be in effect from 2007. Actually I heard, that Vodafone wanted title sponsorship with Ferrari, but Mr. Morris had ideas of his own....
    But the livery... welll, Mclaren dont change their colour as per sponsor logos (like Ferrari)... they follow a colour scheme, but lets see...

    I think Ferrari changed its red base colour only once during the past ten years or so.

    BMW's sponsor O2 will probably show up as Telefonica next year, since O2 was acquired by Telefonica this year.

    From what I recall, Ferrari used a blue/white livery for two races in the 60's because Enzo Ferrari was in conflict with the Italian sporting authority.

    I thought I had seen it somewhere, which was in this picture that was posted some time ago (as a rapidshare link that is now dead). It's a pretty big picture so 56k or old version browser users beware.
